‘Go Cubs Go!’: Watch the Incredible Postgame Celebration at Wrigley After Cubs Win

screen-shot-2016-10-31-at-10-38-52-am-1Prior to Sunday night, the Chicago Cubs hadn’t won a World Series game at Wrigley Field since Oct. 8, 1945. So when the Cubbies finally broke through, it was a pretty safe bet that the fans were going to lose their minds celebrating. This they did, and it made for incredible television.

As per a Cubs victory tradition which dates back approximately a decade, the song “Go Cubs Go!” was played, and nearly all of the 41,711 fans in attendance sang along.

The result was a truly enthralling moment guaranteed to warm the hearts of all but the most ardent Cleveland Indians fans.

The song’s chorus boomed throughout the stadium, and echoed on to Waveland Avenue.

Go Cubs go! Go Cubs go! Hey Chicago, what do you say! The Cubs are gonna win today!

The crowd noise reached a crescendo when a white flag with a blue W was raised above the stadium, another longtime Cubs victory custom.
